International Notes: Mariners, Rangers

We'll keep track of today's international news right here..

  • The Mariners have signed 16-year-old Dominican third baseman Leurys Vargas for $400K, according to Ben Badler of Baseball America.  Vargas, who stands at 6'3", 215 pounds, is the son of former big league lefthander Yorkis Perez.  Badler writes that he has great bat speed and raw power from the left side but could be moved to first base because of his size. 
  • The Rangers signed Luis Terrero, a 16-year-old from the Dominican Republic, Badler writes.  The 6'0", 180 pound shortstop is built similarly to a young Juan Uribe and has a solid righthanded bat.  Terrero has a chance to stick at shortstop but his build might push him over to second or third base.

Well, if he makes the majors, at least the bar is set low for him to be the best Luis Terrero in MLB history.
